A Colorado gold rush for the modern era may get going in a few months thanks to Coronado Brewing Company and Cigar City Brewing.

According to Coronado’s brewing calendar, the two breweries are working together to create Conquista, or conquest in English. The IPA will come in 22-ounce bottles in addition to a draft version.


Conquista will come in at 6.5 percent ABV and will feature the new German hop Polaris “known for its high alpha acids and distinct pineapple and herbaceous notes,” as well as Equinox and Simcoe hops.


In an email, Melody Crisp, marketing manager at Coronado, told Tenemu that the previously unreleased beer is scheduled to be brewed at Coronado in February and is expected to arrive at retailers in March 2017.
